These are really good. They go well with a slightly modified Southwestern sauce from Canadian Living (vegan worstershire). The only modification i needed was to add more water. I add water until i can form balls without them crumbling apart.

Well, I'm making these now. I did a few things differently, i used a can of lentils,, drained, so I halved the amounts of oatmeal and cornmeal. I used a large clove of fresh garlic, and used lots of fresh basil and oregano, minced up fine. It smells wonderful, and we love lentils, so I can't wait to taste them!

Delicious faux meatballs! I find them more like falafel than like meatballs (sauce makes them lose their crunch). I had them with an Indian dipping sauce and they were divine. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the post! --mamadeon

I followed the recipe exactly. They were less like meat balls and more like.... bread balls? They were DELICIOUS. We threw some red pepper crumbs in there and spiced them right up. I think they would be delicious with a brown gravy on top.

I added nooch and skipped the 'lightly fry' part of the recipe. They were a little dry, but some gravy fixed that problem.
Thanks for the recipe! Very yummy. I will make it again.  :)
